Solar Canopies

This map shows the location of the project. For projects that do not have a specific location but affect a line/route or the entire system, either the affected lines/routes are shown, or an entire service area map is shown.

If you select the option to “toggle the benefit layer,” you will see an approximation of the area that will benefit from the project.

Project Description

Metra will investigate the feasibility of erecting solar canopy systems at Metra-owned stations and parking lots. Metra will study the benefits and costs of offering electric vehicle charging stations that utilize power derived from solar canopies positioned above parking stalls. Project activities include but are not limited to feasibility studies, site surveys, professional services, preliminary engineering, and construction activities.
